Greatness can always recognize greatness.
Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow may be out for the season, but that just gives him more time to watch the sport he loves, and that includes some college football.
Burrow was tuned in to the game between Vanderbilt and Tennesee and Sarah Fuller knock down not one, but two PAT’s on the day.
“This whole time has been if I can do it, if I’m good enough to do it,” Fuller said postgame. “It wasn’t if I was a girl or not. So that’s something I’ve really appreciated. At the end of the day, they treated me like an athlete and that’s the best I could ask for.”
Burrow enjoyed it so much that he has since went viral with his respose to Fuller:
“Football Guy of the Week lock right?” he tweeted.
Fuller has been the Special Teams Player o The Week and now has her second PAT kick going to the College Football Hall of Fame.
“She’s been accurate in that area of the field,” Vanderbilt interim coach Todd Fitch said. “… We get in the game and she was highly accurate with it in that range, the extra points and inside the 10, so she was going to get those. The other kickers were going to get it further back.
“It was truly off statistics of the week’s preparation. It wasn’t about trying to do something special. It was truly who made most of those kicks.”
